Did Bernie Really Win?

2020 July 12

The longer the campaign goes on, the further Joe Biden is lurching to the left to appease the progressive wing of the Democratic Party and all the special interest groups – BLM, the NAACP, Hispanics, LGBTQ activists and garden variety empty-headed young leftists.

What many more moderate Democratic voters and independents don’t realize the Democratic Party of 2020 is way to left of the Democratic Party of 2009. In 2009-10 the Democrats were in complete control, They held the White House, the Senate and the House, yet they left some things undone, primarily amnesty. You can bet they won’t make any major mistakes like that again. And, by passing laws legalizing mail-in voting and vote harvesting, they will be in perpetual control.

To RINOs like Romney, Cornyn and Graham, this is no big deal. They have theirs and they can live in gated communities without gear. And, as long as they are in Congress, they are  only too happy to cross the aisle and help the Democrats destroy the country.

One of Barack Obama’s goals, which he failed to accomplish was the destruction of the nation’s suburbs, and this is a goal Joe Dementia has adopted.

Joe Biden’s radical proposal for the Democrat Party platform for 2020 seeks to put an end to America’s suburban communities by forcing low-income housing into every neighborhood and flooding every community with immigrants, legal or otherwise.

The proposal, known as the Biden-Sanders Unity Task Force Recommendations, would provide instant amnesty and a pathway to U.S. citizenship for the 22 million illegal aliens now living in the nation. Astoundingly, it would also give legal status to all the world’s refugees regardless of the legitimacy of their claim to the status.

But on top of all that, Biden and Sanders are proposing that Barack Obama’s so-called Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing rules will be put into full force.

For instance, in the “executive orders” section of the platform proposal, Biden/Sanders note that Biden would, “Implement the Obama-Biden Administration’s Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Rule requiring communities receiving certain federal funding to proactively examine housing patterns and identify and address policies that have discriminatory effects.”

The Biden/Sanders platform also scolds Trump, and says Biden would “Roll back Trump Administration policies gutting fair lending and fair housing protections.”

In another section, the platform states Biden would: “Ensure effective and rigorous enforcement of the Fair Housing Act and the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act. Hold financial institutions accountable for discriminatory practices in the housing market.”

With a longer explanation, the platform states:

Democrats will vigorously enforce the Fair Housing Act and the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act and hold lenders accountable for discriminatory practices. We will use the federal government to enforce settlements against discriminatory lenders, and require communities to proactively review housing patterns and remedy local policies that have a discriminatory effect. Democrats will give local elected officials tools and resources to combat gentrification, penalize predatory lending practices, and maintain homeownership, including exploring targeted rental relief when exorbitant rent increases force long-term residents from their communities and tackling persistent racial bias in appraisals that contributes to the racial wealth gap.

If you are unsure of what all this means, the Obama AFFH rules would force every single American city or town to add section 8 and so-called “low-income” housing in every community.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson recently explained what the outcome of such a rule would mean for America’s suburban communities.

Carlson said the Biden platform would:

…make the rest of America very much like our biggest cities have become: squalid, dangerous, chaotic and unhappy. They’d like to do to your neighborhood what they have done to New York City. The main thing they’ve done to New York is make it scary. Violent crime is surging dramatically there, as we have told you night after night. none of the main reasons for that is the elimination of cash bail — the city no longer holds the people at arrests.

The Fox host then added:

Democrats want to abolish the suburbs. They are too clean and nice, and therefore by definition, they are racist. The Biden campaign has highly specific plans on how to do this. It’s called affirmatively furthering fair housing. It’s a HUD regulation, it was written during the Obama administration. Biden’s advisors plan to enforce it. They will cut off critical federal funds for municipalities unless those municipalities submit to federal control of urban planning. Towns will be ordered to abolish zoning for single-family housing because single-family homes, needless to say, are racist. Low-income federally subsidized apartments will go up in the suburbs. It’s a good bet you won’t see any of this. You won’t see projects being built in Aspen or Martha’s Vineyard or anywhere else Eric Holder vacations but in your neighborhood? Oh, yeah.

The rules would make planning and building homes in every neighborhood the exclusive business of the federal government which would tell all of us how we are allowed to live, in what sort of homes, and where those homes are built.
That is what you will be getting if Joe Biden wins in November.

    Nothing like paying (through taxes) to have your neighborhood destroyed.

    This is an old, but lucid article on AFFH. Obama (now Biden) plan to regionalize areas. Thus, in order to get federal grants, Iowa will have to build subsidized housing for poor blacks in Chicago, who will then be transported to Iowa. Forming a blue-voting pod that can be expanded.

    Repubs should have killed it when they had the chance.

    Is there any question that the Democrats have become the anti-working class party? If I was Trump. that’s how I would bill them. This, and other Democratic proposals impact working class Americans of all races.

    I don’t know if that is true any longer. I watched a CSPAN call in Sunday. Caller after caller on the Dim side were renouncing any support for the party.

    You likely saw that this plan is billed as Biden-Sanders. But, I think it answers the question “Why should I even bother to to vote?” once and for all.

    “… Democrats will give local elected officials tools and resources to combat gentrification …”

    Excuse me but I thought a bunch of Dim mayors were depending on the gentrification process to raise the tax base so as to save their cities? Follow that proposal and all it does is solidify maintenance of a lower class status for most of the residents of a city, aka Chicago, which is already hollowed out.

    They want their own study to be retracted, not because the data is wrong, or the methodology unsound… nope, because they don’t like who’s actually using said data… (to counter BLM). Fking hilarious.

    Sadly I doubt it even gets any attention, let alone a vote, and passage, too many pockets are lined by the daily abuse of such today. If the woke crowd actually cared in improving communities over time, they’d get behind things like this. If you want to ‘defund’ police and DA excess, at least around the edges, in a way that could garner wide support, one would naturally start here, that they don’t speaks volumes to it never being about actual results.

    bc3b: “It’s up to the Trump campaign to convince independent and more moderate Democrats that if the Democrats win, the country will move to the far left and will never be what it was.


    One of my very best friends is at least as Conservative as we are here. But he has always been adamant about NOT following the news, and NEVER wants to talk about politics. He just wants to be left alone. Over the last few weeks he has started multiple conversations with me and others on the situation in our country.

    And then two days ago said this to me: “Americans need to wake up and push back hard now, before it’s too late.” (I chided him, reminding him that he used to clam up when anyone tried to talk about the state of the nation). He’s a good man to have on our side…and though he has always been on our side, he is now ready to get vocal and confrontational about it. And there are millions like him, who feel they have been silent too long. I hope it’s not too late.

    In addition to “buycotts,” people who love this country need to boycott brands from woke corporations that are helping the left destroy our country (e.g. Coca-Cola, P&G, Pepsi, Campbell’s, Kellogg’s, Nike, Levi’s, Chase, etc.). My last two leases have been Chevrolets – great vehicles – but I will be looking at Fords and Jeeps next time.

    A bit of detail on the recent DACA loss at the hands of SCOTUS: RINOs of course.


    on Friday the New York Times published an interview with Elaine Duke, who served as the former acting secretary of Homeland Security for four months in 2017, after John Kelly moved over to White House chief of staff but before Kirstjen Nielsen was confirmed to replace him. And as the Times reporter makes sure to tell readers, Duke is a “lifelong Republican” and “veteran of nearly 30 years at the Departments of Homeland Security and Defense.”

    Ms. Duke’s most lasting legacy is likely to be the memo she signed — under pressure — to end that program. Her decision not to cite any specific policy reasons was at the heart of the Supreme Court’s ruling, which said the Trump administration had failed to substantively consider the implications of terminating the program’s protections and benefits.

    Ms. Duke said she did not include policy reasons in the memo because she did not agree with the ideas being pushed by Mr. Miller and Mr. Sessions: that DACA amounted to an undeserved amnesty and that it would encourage new waves of illegal immigration.

    That’s right. We now know, thanks to the New York Times (and the sharp eyes of Becca Lower of RedState) who sabotaged the DACA case and handed the Trump administration an otherwise inexplicable loss.

    Me: of course, SCOTUS was probably looking for any fig leaf to hide behind in giving the opinion they rendered

    More good news. 🙂

    Rich New Yorkers Aren’t Filling Out the Census. Poor New Yorkers May Suffer. If residents who fled the virus for second homes aren’t counted, the city could lose out on crucial federal money — and congressional seats.

    WTF do closing charter schools and de-funding police have to do with COVID-19?

    Police violence “is a leading cause of death and trauma for Black people, and is a serious public health and moral issue,” the union writes.

    I’ve seen this same lie (identical wording) in about five different places in the last week.
